Recreation and Juvenile Delinquency Prevention: How Recreation Professionals Can Design Programs That Really Work.
Munson, Wayne W.
Parks & Recreation, v37 n6 p31-37 Jun 2002
Parks and recreation professionals can help prevent juvenile delinquency by learning more about why young people feel disconnected with society and developing programs to help them develop strong ties and relationships with their communities. Social bonds can be developed through attachment, commitment, involvement, and positive beliefs. A sidebar explains how to use a theoretical base to design program strategies. (SM)
